coffee table of the week

With winter 2020 looking at a somewhat reduced season of events to fuel inspiration, it is time to ensure there are some of the most bold ideas of our age on your reading-list. TASCHEN’s anthology of the architectural legacy of Zaha Hadid, who with her daring vision and creative genius revolutionized the shape of what we thought possible, will have you tick that box.

In a Palladian homage of the late star architect, we pair it with the classicist Charisma End coffee table from Harrods’ Giorgio Collection. Because, to quote Zaha Hadid herself: There are 360 degrees, why stick to one?
